Survey Sez: Bloggers Are Young Internet Users

WBloggers are a predominantly young group of Internet users who are novice storytellers, enjoy describing their own experiences and have a growing audience in the online world. A glimpse of this group was put together by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. The survey found that almost one in 10 Internet users are bloggers and the audience for this group of online diarists is growing. Almost four in 10 of the approximately 147 million adult Internet users in this country say they read blogs. The people they are reading on the online blogs are a young, ethnically diverse group. They are mostly newcomers to writing - often writing about their own experiences. More than half of bloggers are under age 30. They were most likely to list their life and events as the most popular topic, followed by politics and entertainment/Associated Press.

DFO: Well, I'm still young at heart.

Question: Does this describe you, blogger?
